The North Cape is probably the most exciting destination for every biker in Europe. On the journey through the three Nordic countries Norway, Sweden and Finland you will experience a breathtaking variety of landscapes and lots of highlights. Particularly worth mentioning are the region of Dalarna, a cultural tradition bearer in Sweden, and Lapland, which stretches across three countries. Here you will inevitably come into contact with the indigenous Scandinavian people, the Sami. Along the Norwegian coasts you will experience the Lofoten Islands and many, many (really many) fjords, as well as the Atlantic Road, Trollstigen and the world famous Geirangerfjord.

This trip is organized as a self-drive group tour. This means that there is no tour guide on the tour, but all hotels and some important ferry crossings are pre-booked. The route is planned by us and the participants receive a detailed travel description, road maps and our route recommendation as a GPX and GDB file for their own GPS to download. Who likes to ride alone, who prefers to ride together with others joins together with other participants and then experience together with them one or the other day or the entire tour. Or you can just meet in the evening at the bar for a nightcap or two.

Itinerary:

Day 1: Arrival Oslo (Norway).

After arriving safely in Oslo, you will pick up your motorcycle in the afternoon near the hotel. The rest of the day you have time to prepare yourself and your bike for the tour, explore the city on your own and get to know other participants of the self-guided group tour.

Day 2: Oslo - Falun 465 km

The border region between Norway and Sweden is rich in wooded stretches, small and sometimes winding roads lead into Sweden in the province of Dalarna. Hardly any landscape embodies the Swedish idyll more: traditional red houses along the shore are not uncommon here. The historic copper town of Falun is particularly well known beyond Sweden's borders. It coined the name Falaunrot, which has adorned the town's wooden houses since the 16th century.

Day 3: Falun - Sundsvall 295 km

Through the Hälsingland region, famous in Sweden for folk dancing, you ride up near the Baltic Sea to Sundsvall, the town between two mountains. The hostel for the night is located in an old timber and sawmill town.

Day 4: Sundsvall - Skellefteå 400 km

The ride takes you further along the rocky coast of the Baltic Sea, the Swedes call it "Höga Kusten". Umeå, Sweden's second largest city, was built on a river estuary. With wide streets and many trees it is also called "City of Birches". The day's destination is Skellefteå, one of Sweden's youngest towns, founded in 1845.

Day 5: Skellefteå - Rovaniemi 375 km

Following the Gulf of Bothnia you cross the Finnish border at the Torne River in Haparanda/Tornio. Rovaniemi is the capital of Finnish Lapland. You can marvel at a very successful Arctic museum, a beautiful Orthodox church and many public buildings designed by the Finnish star architect Alvor Alto. You will spend the night at the Arctic Circle, in Rovaniemi.

Day 6: Rovaniemi - Inari 330 km

Lapland's vast landscape of stretched-out moors, forests and lakes is impressive. Extensive national parks are located here. Behind the town of Sodankylä the Sami part of Lapland begins. Attention: Here you can meet reindeer on the road! Your destination is the town of Inari further to the northwest. The Siida Museum and Event Centre in Inari is a good place to start getting to know and understand Sami life.

Day 7: Inari - Honningsvåg 370 km

You will notice that Lapland is very sparsely populated when you ride the route to Karasjok in Norway. Here you will encounter the mighty valley of the Tana River. The Norwegian Sámi have their modern parliament here, which is also open to the public. In Lakselv on the wide Porsangerfjord you will meet the North Sea for the first time. On the western shore you will pass the national park in Stabbursdalen and head towards your day's destination and overnight stay in Honningsvåg, which is located directly in front of North Cape.

Day 8: North Cape and surroundings 75 km

The 35 km to the North Cape Rock can be done quickly. North Cape has been a popular tourist destination for about 200 years. The so-called North Cape Hall, an adventure centre, is carved into the rock above the North Sea. A second destination on the way back to Honningsvåg is Skarsvåg: about 60 people live in what is said to be the northernmost fishing village in the world.

Day 9: Honningsvåg - Sørkjosen 375 km

You are heading south again. The route takes you over the mountains of Sennalandet to Alta and on to Sørkjosen on the Reisafjord, the end point of the day's stage.

Day 10: Sørkjosen - Harstad 290 km

From Olderdalen you take the ferry across the Lyngenfjord to Lyngseidet (approx. 40 min). The Lyngenfjord goes deep inland and gives you an impressive view with its high steep mountains on the shore of the fjord. Harstad in South Troms is the destination for the day.

Day 11: Harstad - Fauske 370 km

The journey to Svolvær, the capital of Lofoten, takes you across an island kingdom that lets you experience another facet of the Nordic landscape. A ferry ride from Svolvær to Skutvik (approx. 1 h 55 min) with beautiful views of the surrounding islands, brings you back to the mainland.

Day 12: Fauske - Sandnessjøen 285 - 370 km

You cross the Arctic Circle again and can choose between two routes: Either the more leisurely variant through the hinterland with 285 km and about 4.5 h riding time or the adventurous and more eventful variant along the coast with many fjords and three ferry trips (not included in the price) with 370 km and about 8 hours total travel time.

Day 13: Sandnessjøen - Trondheim 455 km

One of the longest and also most impressive days of the tour. You ride along the North Sea and after three ferry crossings (included in the price) you turn into the hinterland. Passing some inland lakes and fjords you finally reach the old capital Trondheim. A walk to the magnificent cathedral through the alleys of the over 1,000 year old city is almost a must.

Day 14: Trondheim - Molde

225 - 285 km

The ride takes you again along some fjords (ferryHalsa - Kanestraum, approx. 20 min, tickets to be bought locally) to the Atlantic Road (toll for motorcycles as of 2019 NOK 68 ~ EUR 7). In case of bad weather, we recommend the shorter route without the Atlantic Road. The day's destination Molde is located on the north side of the wide Romsdalsfjord.

Day 15: Molde - Førde 335 km

Perhaps the most beautiful day of the trip is about to begin. The highlights: great serpentines to Trollstigen with the 320 m high waterfall Stigfossen, the famous serpentines at Geiranger Fjord and an approx. 1 hour ferry ride through the most famous fjord in the world from Geiranger to Hellesylt (included). Other ferry crossings: Sølsnes - Åfarnes, 15 min; Linge - Eidsdal, 10 min; tickets for these two ferries can be purchased on site.

Day 16: Førde - Geilo 300 km

The day's destination is Geilo in southern Norway, known for its ski resorts and mountain trails. The way there leads along some fjords and gives you the last two ferry crossings of the tour.

Tickets can be bought on the spot.

Day 17: Geilo - Oslo 220 km

The last day of ridding in Norway brings you back to Oslo. After your arrival in the afternoon you drop off your bike near the hotel and enjoy the last evening of the trip in the Norwegian capital.

Day 18: Journey home

In the morning transfer to the airport and return home with many beautiful memories in your luggage. End of the trip.
